Famous quotes containing the words massie and/or allan:

    Do you know what a soldier is, young man? He’s the chap who makes it possible for civilised folk to despise war.
    —Allan Massie (b. 1938)

    I have often been reproached with the aridity of my genius; a deficiency of imagination has been imputed to me as a crime; and the Pyrrhonism of my opinions has at all times rendered me notorious. Indeed, a strong relish for physical philosophy has, I fear, tinctured my mind with a very common error of this age—I mean the habit of referring occurrences, even the least susceptible of such reference, to the principles of that science.
    —Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)
